I've never seen a manual for those, but they're not that complicated if you sit and study what happens and in what order.
The most radical bit (for me) is the payout utilising a second clock.

You'll have noticed every part of it is cast or forged at the base of a volcano before being compressed in The Mariana Trench to intensify density. If you keep it upstairs make sure the kids help your wife to carry it.

I had the chance to buy one of these many years ago for £200 and the opening price was "very negotiable" I remember him repeating a number of times.
I was disappointed to find it had one of the cast panels missing but most interestingly it came with a bonus of about half a gallon of dirty engine oil sloshing around in the base of it.

I declined it on the basis that laying it on its back in my Granada for 70 miles was unlikely to improve my velor interior any.

It might have doubled the value of your old Grandad and stopped it rusting away to nothing! :HaHa:

Its demise was more dramatic than mere "metal moth".
I was driving back to Derby from Crewe one night when the automatic gearbox decided to select all of its options at the same time. Oh how I laughed! I'd never been driving in reverse whilst parked in 3rd before.

I've attached your query to the topic about these bandits. See also Junkyard collectables where treefrog spotted this machine.

I saw the junkyard post and it hints they are BDR but as it's going in a new page on the penny-arcade.info site I wanted to make sure.
